How to Pronounce 'W'

To make the 'W' sound, make your lips round in the shape of a small circle. Then, stick them out enough, so they do not touch your teeth. Keep the back portion of your tongue high in the mouth, but do not let it touch the roof. Push the air out and make sure you feel your vocal cords vibrate.
